Karen Lazar is based in Los Angeles, California. She has always been into clothes and jewelry and started working in retail at the age of fifteen.
After several years of retail and FIDM, she opened her own store, Acacia in the 90's as a multi-designer boutique in Beverly Hills. After ten years I went on to design and manufacture a women's pant collection called Gavin. The pants were all about the fit and sold in over 100 boutiques in the United States.
She started making gold bead bracelets for herself in small medium beads. They were so comfortable, she never took them off. Her friends asked her to make them to sell. Within 7 years, she became the "It" Hollywood jewelry designer, with her classic but fresh designs adorning the wrists of Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, and other A-list actresses.
Her bracelets are easy to wear. They delicately stretch over the hand and will not fall off if sized correctly. They can be worn in the water - showering and swimming - and mix well with bangles or other bracelets to make each wrist one's own.
